13 Claims, 5 Drawing Figures I SLIP RING ASSEMBLY AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention This invention relates to a slip ring assembly for use in small-sized rotary electric machines and a method of making such a slip ring assembly.

2. Description of the Prior Art With the remarkable progress of chemical synthetic materials in recent years, these synthetic materials are widely used in small-sized rotary electric machines to form a part such as a molded cylindrical base of slip ring assemblies.

Conventional slip ring assemblies of this kind have been made by preparing conductive rings separately from terminals, welding the terminals to the respective conductive rings and molding theconductive rings with a molding material to obtain a slip ring assembly or, as disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 3,435,402, by punching out conductive strips each provided with a terminal from a sheet of conductive material by means of a press, forming these conductive strips into an annular shape to obtain conductive rings, setting two conductive rings on a mold in suitably spaced apart relation from each other, and molding with a thermo-setting molding material such as a polyester resin in such a manner that the outer peripheral surface of the conductive rings is exposed to outside from the molded structure. In such a conventional slip ring assembly, claws must be provided on the conductive rings in order to ensure a better bond between the conductive rings and the molding material and to prevent undesirable deformation of the conductive ring and the molding material due to the thermal contraction of the molding material. Due to the need for provision of such claws, the conductive rings must have a correspondingly greater thickness which results in the wasteful use of the conductive material and is thus uneconomical. In the former slip ring assembly, the terminals are joined to the conductive rings by means of soldering, brazing or electric welding and then the conductive rings are molded with a molding material. Thus, molding pressure is imparted to the terminals during the molding to apply a breaking force to the weld thereby reducing the reliability of the weld. Further, a heating loss occurs generally in the molding material which is therefore subject to shrinkage. This is objectionable for the proper performance of the machine in that an undesirable clearance is produced between the inner peripheral surface of the conductive rings and the outer peripheral surface of the molding material during the operation of the machine and the conductive rings are subject to deformation thereby bringing forth unsatisfactory sliding engagement with the associated brushes.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is an object of the present invention to provide a slip ring assembly and a method of making same in which individual components are separately prepared and are assembled together by means of pressfitting and pressure engagement so as to improve the productivity thereof.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a slip ring assembly and a method of making same in which a generally U-shaped wire is used to provide the terminals so as to improve the productivity and workability.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a slip ring assembly having a molded cylindrical base which is formed with a plurality of spaced grooves for receiving the terminals therein, each groove including a combination of a portion having a depth larger than the diameter of the terminal and a portion having a depth smaller than the diameter of the terminal so that electrical connection and insulation can be simply carried out on a single line.

These objects are realized according to the present invention by providing a method of making a slip ring assembly comprising the steps of preparing a molded cylindrical base, a plurality of conductive rings and a plurality of wire terminals separately from one another, said molded cylindrical base being formed with a plurality of axially extending grooves each having a deep portion and a shallow portion, disposing said wire terminals in said grooves respectively, and press-fitting said conductive rings on said cylindrical base in spaced apart relationship from each other thereby to electrically and mechanically connect said conductive rings and said wire terminals with each other so as to obtain an assembly of said molded cylindrical base, said conductive rings, and said wire terminals. The present invention also contemplates the assembled slip ring assembly construction according to this method. By virtue of the fact that the components are prepared as individual units, the slip ring assembly can be produced at low cost with a high productivity. The slip ring assembly is free from any deformation of the conductive rings and the molded cylindrical base due to thermal contraction of the molded cylindrical base. Further, the slip ring assembly thus manufactured shows a high reliability due to the fact that the welding of the wire terminals to the conductive rings is unnecessary.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a slip ring assembly made by a method embodying the present invention.

FIG. 2 is a sectional view taken on the line 11-11 in FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a sectional view taken on the line III-III in FIG. 1.

FIG. 4 is an axial sectional front elevation of a molded cylindrical base having conductive rings and terminals set at predetermined positions thereon.

FIG. 5 is an exploded perspective view showing the components of the slip ring assembly.

DESDRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Referring to the drawing, a slip ring assembly according to the present invention comprises a molded cylindrical base 1 of electrically insulating material such as a phenol resin, simple conductive rings 2 and 3, and wire terminals 4 and 5. A pair of diametrically spaced grooves 6 and 7 are formed on the outer peripheral surface of the molded cylindrical base 1 to extend in the axial direction thereof. The grooves 6 and 7 receive the respective terminals 4 and 5 therein so as to electrically connect the conductive rings 2 and 3 with the respective terminals 4 and 5. The conductive rings 2 and 3 have an inner diameter of, for example, 29.0 mm and the molded cylindrical base 1 has an outer diameter of, for example, 29.1 to 29.2 mm so that the conductive A contact with the wire terminal 4 at this portion, while the portion of the groove 7 underlying the conductive ring 2 has a depth larger than the diameter of the wire terminal so that a space for electrically insulating the conductive ring 2 from the wire terminal 5 can be maintained therebetween and an electrically insulating sleeve 8 can be disposed in the space. On the other hand, as seen in FIGS. 3 and 4, the portion of the groove 6 underlying the conductive ring 3 has a depth larger than the diameter of the wire terminal 4 so that the unnecessary portion of the wire terminal 4 can be easily removed from the groove 6, while the portion of the groove 7 underlying the conductive ring 3 has a depth smaller than the diameter of the wire terminal 5 so that the conductive ring 3 press-fitted on the molded cylindrical base 1 can be brought into pressure contact with the wire terminal 5 at this portion. The length of the deep portion of the groove 7 is different from that of the deep portion of the groove 6 as seen.

The method of assembling such a slip ring assembly will be described with reference to FIGS. 4 and 5. A generally U-shaped wire A to provide the wire terminals 4 and 5 is fitted in the grooves 6 and 7 formed on the molded cylindrical base 1 and then the conductive rings 2 and 3 are successively press-fitted on the molded cylindrical base 1 from one end of the latter, After positioning the conductive rings 2 and 3 at predetermined positions as shown in FIG. 4, the electrically insulating sleeve 8 for preventing short-circuit between the conductive rings 2 and 3 is fitted on the wire A and the wire A is severed at points A, and A Finally, the remaining wire portions are bent as required to provide the wire terminals 4 and 5.

it will thus be seen that, according to the method of the present invention, the conductive rings 2 and 3 can be brought into pressure contact and completely electrically connected with the respective wire terminals 4 and 5 at predetermined positions by merely pressfitting the conductive rings 2 and 3 on the molded cylindrical base 1. While a generally U-shaped wire is desirably used in the embodiment of the present invention, it will be understood that a straight wire may be used in lieu thereof to attain the effect similar to that above described.

From the foregoing detailed description, it will be understood that the present invention provides a method of making a slip ring assembly comprising the steps of preparing a molded cylindrical base, a plurality of conductive rings and a plurality of wire terminals separately from one another, said molded cylindrical base being formed with a plurality of axially extending grooves each having a deep portion and a shallow portion, disposing said wire terminals in said grooves respectively, and press-fitting said conductive rings on said cylindrical base in spaced apart relation from each other thereby to electrically and mechanically connect said conductive rings and said wire terminals with each other so as to obtain an assembly of said molded cylindrical base, said conductive rings and said wire terminals. By virtue of the fact that the components are prepared as individual units, the slip ring assembly can be produced at low cost with a high productivity. The slip ring assembly is free from any deformation of the conductive rings and the molded cylindrical base due to thermal contraction of the molded cylindrical base. Further, the slip ring assembly thus manufactured shows a high reliability due to the fact that welding of the wire terminals to the conductive rings is unnecessary.

Slip ring assemblies made by the method of the present invention were subjected to a test under severe conditions including a high temperature and a very low temperature. In the test, one heating ad cooling cycle included heating to 170 C for 23 hours, cooling to 30 C for 1 hour, heating to C for 47 hours at a relative humidity of 80 percent and allowing to stand at room temperature for 1 hour, and the slip ring assemblies were subjected to ten such heating and cooling cycles. The test results showed that the outer diameter of the conductive rings varied in the range of from 0.004 to 0.014 mm which is very small compared with the range of from 0.1 to 0.2 mm in the case of the conductive rings in conventional slip ring assemblies. (In order that the test conditions match the actual operating conditions of electric generators, the molded cylindrical base was subjected to after-curing at 240 C for 4 hours prior to the test to remove moisture and any other volatile matters therefrom for the purpose of sufficient aging.) The tensile strength of the wire terminals lay in the range of 61 to 98 Kg per square mm. It will thus be understood that the variation in the dimension of the molded cylindrical base due to aging is about one-fifth that of conventional slip ring assemblies and the slip ring assembly according to the present invention can operate over a long period of time without any deformation.
